Binder Park Zoo is fortunate to have Kelly, our head of commissary (aka zoo chef), as part of our zoo crew.  Kelly always goes above and beyond when it comes to making special animal birthday cakes or enrichment treats for the zoo animals. Over the almost eight years at the zoo, our mama bear of animal care has taken on the role of mentor and become a person that zookeepers can count on for advice and good humor. “I enjoy knowing that I am not just “doing my job”. The animal care team here has the privilege of taking care of many animals that are part of the species survival program. Zoos are not just for entertainment purposes. We are here to educate others not only about these animals, but about conservation and the environment. We must take care of this planet in order to still be able to thrive and survive on it. “ “My favorite animal is the moose. I have several favorites throughout the zoo, and have had many throughout the years, but my favorite zoo animal by far was Fred the Kinkajou (a former education animal).” #thanksforallyoudo #nationalzookeeperweek #binderparkzoo
